This continues to be an interesting discussion as our typical meetings are not really very "trans typical". We may have a post-op ts sitting next to trans person that is out and about for the very first time. With this diversity we find it a little difficult to have only one purpose. We have found the meetings are benefitial for so many for so many reasons but they include: Fellowship with like minded people, support in personal struggles that related to being transgender and giving back to the trans community. It is an amazing group of people of which you should plan to attend very soon.
